A Springboard for You

For a better life and a better eternity

The Next Survivor Series

 

 

 

My wife forwarded the following e-mail to me. It made me laugh and I thought you might like it too. And so, I introduce to you the next big thing on Reality TV–Survivor: MOM

 

 

 

 

Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.

 

  • Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes.
  • There is no fast food.
  • Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, and complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of ‘pretend’ bills with not enough money.
  • In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.
  • Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time–no emailing.
  • Each man must also take each child to a doctor’s appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment. He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care.
  • He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function.
  • Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned use, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times.
  • The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.
  • The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.
  • During one of the six weeks, the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.
  • They must attend weekly school meetings, church, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.
  • They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning, feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.
  • A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information: each child’s birthday, height, weight, shoe size, clothes size and doctor’s name.
  • Also the child’s weight at birth, length, time of birth, and length of labor, each child’s favorite color, middle name, favorite snack, favorite song, favorite drink, favorite toy, biggest fear and what they want to be when they grow up.
  • The kids vote them off the island based on performance.
  • The last man wins only if…
    he still has enough energy to be intimate with his spouse at a moment’s notice.
  • If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right to be called Mother!

After you get done laughing, send this to as many females as you think will get a kick out of it and  as many men as you think can handle it.
Just don’t send it back to me…. I’ m going to bed.

———————————–

Whoever wrote the stipulation for winning must clearly not be a man. After all, men can be intimate at a moment’s notice even when they’ve been plagued with pneumonia for a month, while surviving a hurricane and trekking through the Australian outback.
